This program mixes up works from three major areas where Tenney was especially productive; pieces for solo instruments and one piano duo, electronic works created on computers, and chamber pieces that incorporate a few instruments along with a computer track. All of the ensemble playing by the Barton Workshop's is very crisp in such loosely defined music; at one point in the Ergodos III Frank Denyer and Nora Mulder veer into a completely tonal passage out of more scattered material that proceeds it, and the effect is natural and feels like it belongs.

Indeterminacy is a composing approach in which some aspects of a musical work are left open to chance or to the interpreter's free choice. John Cage, a pioneer of indeterminacy, defined it as "the ability of a piece to be performed in substantially different ways". The earliest significant use of music indeterminacy features is found in many of the compositions of American composer Charles Ives in the early 20th century
